To Do List

Select about 10 tasks from the weekly plan to create a daily To Do List. This includes items from your calendar, repeating tasks, action steps for goals and projects, and time for personal development.


Low tech: Set of a weekly planning form plus five daily planning forms (pdf)




High tech: I am now using a combination of Google Tasks (for repeating tasks) plus GTasks and Google Tasks Taskary which combine more lists and Google Calendar nicely) I can add tasks in Google Calendar when I’m at my computer, or in Taskary with my tablet. See Also Android Apps for Productivity. More possibilities at Solutions Watch.

Combination: I send myself an email of my to do list from Taskary to print out as part of the weekly review process. I keep it in a leather index card holder inside a cut-down plastic project file to protect it. Blank index cards to capture notes are in the back pocket of the holder.

  1. I agree with you, except for the last point. I think it sometimes good to just add to dos just as they come to you. IE/ If while you’re working on this project, your realize there is this feature you’d like to add, you can add a task for tomorrow on the day after the that. You don’t necessarily have toc oem up with the following day’s to do list the night before… it can be composed of assks you entered thoughtout the day. I prefer the “high tech” to do lists personally, namely this site called ZoToDo. It’s for daily to do lists… I mean the lots of other sites, and by the way I know that has nothing to do with the point I was making… but I just like it better than some of the other sites and thought I should mention it.
